Wilders gets US legal help: Fox News

Anti-immigration MP Geert Wilders is getting pro bono legal help from a US organisation devoted to protecting free speech, according to Fox News.

The Legal Project was founded after a number of cases in which authors and activitists were sued for alleged hate speech against Muslims and Islam, the tv station says.
Earlier this week the Amsterdam appeal court ruled that Wilders should face prosecution for inciting hatred and discrimination.
‘The Legal Project helped me when I was in the United States, arranging meetings with important legal scholars and elected officials,’ Fox News quoted the Dutch MP as saying.
‘They also helped bring public attention to my case, which hopefully will help me raise money for my legal defence fund.’
